Bundaberg forum to focus on the future
NEW trends in energy and telecommunications and what new biosecurity and vegetation management laws will mean for primary producers will be the focus of an AgForce forum in Bundaberg next week.
AgForce South-East Queensland regional president Neville Galloway said registrations were now open for the Preparing for the Future with Ag forum at the Brothers Sports Club on Thursday, August 11.
"This forum is designed to help primary producers from right throughout south-east Queensland prepare for future challenges and opportunities in key areas that affect their businesses, such as telecommunications, energy and transport,” he said.
"Having access to fast, reliable and affordable mobile phone and internet services is one of the biggest issues in the bush, so we are pleased that representatives from Telstra and NBN Co will take part in a telecommunications session at the forum.
"It's going to be a busy day with lots of interesting discussions aimed at getting primary producers looking at challenges they face and ideas that can help them take their business forward.”
Attendance of the forum and industry tour is free for AgForce members, while the cost for non-members is $70 for the forum and $30 for the industry tour.
